10:04pm
gun. a chaotic scene left school books scattered and one boy critically injured, his bloodied clothes in the street. neighbors say the teen collapsed in a driveway after being shot. young children watched it all play out. >> i am very worried because i didn't expect that from this area, you know, because normally it's very quiet around here, but i'm just shocked. >> reporter: residents say the intersection is a gathering spot for young people after school. neighbors say they've complained for years. >> we're used to it. it's an everyday thing. it's every day. it's not like it's today. it's every day. when they come across that street, they gang up and it's one police over there that comes across the street and disperses the crowd. they go from one place to another. >> reporter: this time witnesses say a group of girls was fighting and at the same time a separate dispute between two men broke out. neighbors tried to break the group up shortly before the
10:05pm
shooting. >> they moved down here. then the sheriff came and told them to move, too but then he left. then they formed again. this time we heard four gunshots. >> reporter: police don't believe the men involved in the shooting went to nearby largo high school, but residents say something has to be done to keep the groups from gathering. on most days fights break out. today gunfire. >> every day these kids come from that school and they form like little groups arguing and fussing because this is not the first time we've toll them to take that from in front of our house. >> reporter: again although police say no one from the school was directly involved, neighbors do believe something needs to be done about students gathering near their home. tonight police are still search for the gunman, the 19-year-old still in serious but stable condition. he's expected to survive. >> that is some good news there. thank you. a montgomery county police officer was involved in this chain reaction crash.

10:07pm
laying out some of his plans for the future. so what does the future hold for the outgoing d.c. mayor? fenty says he's done with politics for now. [ applause ] >> reporter: the morning after his stinging loss mayor adrian fenty who just four years ago won all precincts thanked his supporters and said he will get behind vincent gray. no bitterness, no talk of regret, only positive words for the city's future. >> i really respect the democratic process. to me it would be overstepping my bounds to say as the incumbent mayor that i think the democratic nominee should do this or he should do that. in fact, i'm here almost to say i'm here to support him in what he thinks. >> reporter: mayor fenty says he's had a great 10 year run in elected office and now it's time to do something eliminates, although what that is he -- else, although what that is he wouldn't say. >> i feel like i put everything into it. i was fully prepared and
10:08pm
excited to serve the city four more years, but it wasn't to be. that wasn't the will of the voters and i support the will of the voters will support chairman gray and as of this time, i think i'm at a point in my life where i could move on to something else. >> reporter: vincent gray thanking voters calling for unity. >> one of the things that's most important to me at this stage is to be able to work to earn the support of those people who did not vote for us. [ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: fresh off his primary night win, gray vowed to be inclusive, promised to hold weekly press conferences and regular town hall meetings and he says he will be transparent and accountable. supporters including some union leaders say they see new hope. >> what we do have expectations about is that we will be included in decision making in this city. we were excluded for almost four years. >> i want you to know how
10:09pm
humbled i am with the victory last night and with the trust that has been vested in me by the voters. >> tonight the $64,000 question is whether vincent gray will keep schools chancellor michelle rhee. he said he will not make any personnel changes until after the general election. he did say during his victory speech he wants to move forward with education reform in a holistic way with a strong and empowered chancellor who works with parents and teachers. >> the flip side of that is will michelle rhee want to work for vincent gray. of course, you know by now we went into the next day before finding out who actually won the d.c. mayor's race. in a few minutes the director of the board of elections joins us live to talk about what happened and the lessons learned from last night. >> we are keeping our eyes on a developing weather story tonight. two monster hurricanes are spiraling out at sea tonight.
10:10pm
if you can see right there, the large e one on the left is igor -- larger one on the left is igor and right behind him is julia. sue palka is tracking both these storms for us tonight. >> we've got a third one out there, not a hurricane, but karl is up there on the big monitor for you and we also have the spaghetti models up, but clearly what we need to be focusing on is the one in the middle. igor is not going to hit the east coast, but bermuda will get pounded we think with category 1 or 2 hurricane conditions on sunday and perhaps 10 to 20-foot waves just off the coast. julia we believe will stay out to sea. it is a category 3 now. igor is still a category 4 and karl is on land on the yucatan peninsula but may, in fact, become a hurricane again as we go down it the road. a couple important things to talk about with hurricane season. it got a slow start but is quite active now. we want you to know it is very rare that earlier today julia was a category 4 and only recently weakened to a 3 and it's very rare to have two
10:11pm
category 4 storms in the atlantic basin. it has only happened one other time. this is also the fourth category 4 storm we've had in just 20 days that. tells us this atlantic water is super heated and yule ya, by the way, is the strongest storm -- julia, by the way, is the strongest storm we have e seen so far east in the at -- ever seen so far east in the atlantic and there are more waves of pressure coming off the african coast. we've got a long way to go with this hurricane season why. has the east coast not been hit? we are very fortunate to have this weather pattern where these low pressures and eventually tropical storms and then hurricanes are going around the edge of high pressure being steered by that big upper trough you see in the east coast. now there is no guarantee that that is going to continue the rest of the season and we do know in a couple more waves still coming off the coast, we can see here, two more to go off africa, we know that the caribbean will begin heating up. the prediction for this year was 14 to 20 named storms with karl making 11. i think we have a lot more
10:12pm
hurricane season to go. officially the season goes until november 30th. >> sue pal car, see you in a bit for the full forecast -- palka, see you in a bit for the full forecast. they spent their lives protecting freedom, but don't a disturbing admission, several soldiers discovered buried in the wrong graves at arlington national. it's resistant to antibiotics and it could make your entire family sick. find out what's being done to curb the latest super bug before it spreads. will. a local couple taking their culinary dreams to the next level. we have the sweet secrets to their success coming up. >> looks tasty. keep it right here. you're watching fox 5 news at 10:00 and we are just getting started. >> you know i'm brian, right? >> i wasn't calling you will. t
10:13pm
10:14pm
america needs clean energy, and america needs jobs. wind power can deliver on both - but only if the senate encourages investment by passing a strong renewable electricity standard. with a strong res, we can keep 85,000 wind power workers on the job, and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, too. jobs that america could really use right now. for american jobs, tell your senators to pass a renewable electricity standard today.
10:15pm
you saw it play out only on fox 5, the primary night waiting game for the d.c. mayor's race. >> the race for d.c. mayor as
10:16pm
you can see zeros across the board right now. >> this is some 2 1/2 hours and we've still want see a single number -- not seen a single number. >> it's taking some time to get us through the process. >> considerable amount of the vote is still out. >> reporter: we signed off at 1 a.m. and still didn't know who won the mayor's race. today primary winner vincent gray slammed the slow outcome. >> as far as the board of elections and ethics was concerned, it was a disappointment. >> reporter: tonight what were the lessons learned. >> hopefully we'll get some answers tonight. joining us now live rogey sulaman, director of the elections board. you were explaining to us this long process. i want to ask do you still stand behind that b grade you gave the process last night? >> yes, i do. what happened last night is typical when jurisdictions implement new voting equipment. they're going to have the
10:17pm
hiccups i described that occurred last night. could we have done better? yes and we will for november. >> was this a technical problem or a people problem? >> it was a little combination of both. the poll workers weren't familiar with the new equipment when they were closing out the equipment last evening and that took a little time. they also had to print closing reports they weren't used to doing and that took a little bit of time and at night when we were loading up the results into our tabulator we were making our time to make sure we didn't have a repeat of 2008 to ensure we were providing accuracy results. we were looking for accuracy instead of speed last night. >> we understand that was the bullet point message to get across, but ultimately the questions kind of fall on your shoulders. as far as the people problem goes, how much of this does fall on your shoulders when it comes to training those people? >> all of it falls on my shoulders when it comes to training those folks. our precinct captains went through about seven hours in training and a regular poll worker went between three and
10:18pm
four hours of training. we will be training poll workers again and focusing on opening and closing procedures of the equipment and we feel november will be a much better election atmosphere than last night. >> because we had so much time to talk about this as opposed to talking about actual results coming out, we got a lot of feedback on twitter and facebook and there's sort of this over arching theme from a lot of our viewers that thought oh, here we go again. this is just d.c. doing what d.c. does. do you think that your department's actions last night and the slow results gave d.c. a black eye and maybe took us a step back instead of going forward? >> no, i don't. i would significantly disagree with that statement because if you look at the new york instituted new voting equipment last evening as well and they had a lot of problems with their voting equipment and they did not implement same day registration, electronic poll books or early voting at the same time as the district did. the district is the only jurisdiction that's ever tried
10:19pm
to implement all of those procedures and technology its at one time and doing so i think we did a pretty good job. >> i know you were expecting 200,000 voters turning out and we got about 100,000. so i shudder to think how long we would have been here into the morning if we had gotten the 200,000, but you're addressing the situation and an upright outstanding man to come in and talk to us about it. we appreciate your time. >> sure. thanks for having me. new tonight this was a summer of discontent for many military families across the country with news of potentially widespread burial blunders at arlington national cemetery. today the family of one fallen marine went to arlington so to see if their son was in the wrong -- arlington to see if their son was in the wrong story. bob barnard here with the story. >> a teenager aves coffin was unearthed at arlington national cemetery this morning to see if he was a disturbing statistics, one of perhaps the hundreds of iraq and afghanistan war dead
10:20pm
whose gravesites are misidentified in arlington. the army calls what happened today a verification process. the family involved says it was dreadful. coming to arlington from their home in canton, ohio, scott and melissa warner have just identified the remains of their marine son heath. the 19-year-old private was killed by a roadside bomb in iraq four years ago and was buried with full military honors. [ trumpet playing taps ] >> reporter: but was he resting in peace where the army said he was? >> it was honoring heath and making sure that he had the dignity that he was buried where we were told he was buried. >> reporter: turns out this was heath warner's final resting place, positively i'veed by this tattoo on his -- identified by this tattoo on his arm, but arlington recently found three others buried in the wrong grave. >> to have something like this happening is absolutely horrifying and it's really
10:21pm
inexcusable. >> reporter: the discrepancies coming to it light in this inspector general's report released in june. >> the i.g. report found potentially 211 discrepancies in particularly three sections of the cemetery. >> reporter: a senate subcommittee this summer reported as many as 6,600 graves at arlington may be unmarked, improperly marked or mislabeled. >> arlington represents to the world and our country the value we place on our veterans in life and in death and the army must restore the solemn trust that america's heros deserve. >> reporter: congress wants to know what's happened to more than $5 million spent to modernize the cemetery and computerize its burial records. iraq war veteran tom tarantino says there's a simple solution. >> they have to upgrade their systems and get rid of the paper-based system and go to these modern 21st century systems that the va has been using for 10, 15 years. >> reporter: after positively identifying the body, the
10:22pm
warners had heath reburied. >> i have to tell you melissa and i want to say we're sorry to heath. because we had to do this to him. >> reporter: families have asked to have their loved ones remains exhumed at arlington, but the warners don't believe they'll be the last ones to experience a day like this. >> very troubling, thank you. we have a health alert tonight. before you take your last dive into the pool this season we're exposing the cancer connection coming up. plus find out why these horses had to be rescued from the farm that was supposed to rescue them. plus the most infamous of the real housewives makes a stunning confession. find out why she says she's so skinny.
